Nanette's ( Pauline Frederick ) Canadian upbringing has been peaceful despite the fact that her father ( Charles Brandt ) is the leader of a band of smugglers. Then, however, when Baptiste ( Macey Harlan ), a half-breed member of the gang, kills his wife, Constable Thomas O'Brien ( Willard Mack ) of the mounted police arrives not only to investigate the murder, but the gang's smuggling activities as well. Nanette and Thomas become friends and then fall in love, but because she is unaware of the precise nature of the crime that Baptiste committed, she helps him get away from the authorities. When she finds out that he is a murderer, however, she agrees to help Thomas capture him, first making sure that her father and the rest of the gang will be safe from prosecution. After he catches Baptiste and prepares to take him to prison, Thomas promises to return to Nanette and marry her.
This 1916 silent drama was produced by the Famous Players Film Company and starred actress Pauline Frederick. Sadly, Nanette of the Wilds now remains a lost silent film.
